Experienced Tutor and Learning Coach - I can help you or your child excel in his/her chosen subject area!

I am an experienced college, high school and middle school teacher with Florida and California teaching credentials in Social Science and Introductory Science. I am also certified to teach English to EFL students and adults. I hold a B.A. in history from Excelsior College, New York and a post-baccalaureate degree from California State University, Long Beach.

I tutor clients all over Palm Beach County in a wide variety of subjects. I am also an active K-12 substitute teacher in the Palm Beach School District. I have recently returned from a two-year assignment in Rome, Italy where I taught English, Business English and TOEFL preparation to more than 40 students.

I have taught History/Social Science full-time at Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach, California. At the Long Beach BLAST tutoring center, I tutored reading, writing, listening, grammar and vocabulary to EFL high school students struggling to learn English and pass their state language tests. I have also served as an Adjunct Instructor in Computer Science at Santa Ana Community College in California.

I am mature, reliable, experienced and know how to make leaning fun. My rates are very competitive and my schedule is flexible. I look forward to helping you or your child succeed!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced EFL teacher who can help you to reach your English language goals. I just returned from Rome, Italy where I spent the past two years teaching EFL and Business English. I hold a TEFL Specialist Certificate (CELTA equivalent) from the American Language Institute at California State University Long Beach.

Microsoft Outlook

I have served as an Adjunct Instructor, teaching Introduction to Computer Science, Santa Ana College, CA. 2004-2008. I taught college level courses in Microsoft Office applications - Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, and Movie Maker.

Social Studies

I am an experienced Social Science teacher and tutor with a Florida teaching credential. I have helped many students to understand and enjoy History, Civics, Geography and other social science subjects and can help you or your child excel in their classes! Please contact me to discuss how I can help you.

Sociology

I hold current California and Florida teaching credentials in Social Science. This discipline includes the subjects of Sociology, History, Psychology, Geography and Economics. I have taught all of these subjects at a high school in Long Beach, California. I am a trained and experienced teacher/tutor and well-qualified to teach this subject.

Tennis

I am a certified USPTA Level P1 professional tennis instructor. I have been teaching adults and children, beginners, intermediate and advanced for the past five years both in Southern California and in South Florida. I run tennis camps and programs locally and teach out of the Patch Reef Tennis Center in Boca Raton, Fl.

TOEFL

I hold a TEFL Certificate from the American Language Institute at California State University, Long Beach and have been actively tutoring and preparing college students and adults to pass their TOEFL exams since 2009.

I spent 2010-2012 in Rome, Italy, tutoring Italian lawyers from DLA Piper in Business English. During that time, I prepared 17 of my 36 students to take and pass the TOEFL exam, Each got a score of 85 or higher.

I am currently working with a Russian graphics artist, a Brazilian physical therapist and a CPA who wants to take a Master's degree in International Taxation. They all wish to improve their scores so that they may obtain jobs in their chosen professions.

My approach is very personal and, in order to be efficient and save time and money, the curriculum is completely customized to meet your particular needs. Based on an initial assessment, we review the results and tailor your lessons to work on the areas where your need the most help. We'll do other assessments along the way to check your progress and adjust the lessons accordingly.

I have helped many students in the past and I look forward to helping YOU to be successful, too!
